  1. Behavioral neuroscience

    Behavioral neuroscience, also known as biological psychology, biopsychology, or psychobiology is the application of the principles of biology, to the study of physiological, genetic, and developmental mechanisms of behavior in humans and non-human animals. It typically investigates at the level of neurons, neurotransmitters, brain circuitry and the basic biological processes that underlie normal and abnormal behavior. Often, experiments in behavioral neuroscience involve non-human animal models which have implications for better understanding of human pathology and therefore contribute to evidence-based practice.
